ABOUT KELLEE WYNNE CONRAD
Kellee Wynne Conrad was brought up by a long line of artists in California, where she lived with art as a part of her daily life. Kellee worked for many years in the design industry; being published, creating trade product and running workshops, until one day she found herself with the overwhelming desire to go back to her roots in fine art.

Now settled in Maryland with her husband and three boys, Kellee is a painter and current Thrive Resident Artist at Jordan Faye Contemporary in Baltimore, MD. Kellee has been awarded Signature Member of the International Society of Acrylic Painters. Her work includes acrylic painting and mixed media works on both canvas and paper. Kellee has been curating exhibitions in the mid-Atlantic region and was the exhibition coordinator for Maryland Federation of Art. Her work has been acquired by private and corporate collectors, both nationally and internationally as far as Europe and New Zealand. Kellee believes she is on a journey of a lifetime and art is her way of expressing these experiences.

Kellee Wynne Conrad's exhibition, pen*ti*men*to will be on view through September 5, 2015

ABOUT JFC & THRIVE

Jordan Faye Contemporary has continued to redefine the role of the gallery, creating exhibitions to meet the specific needs of artists and art enthusiasts in Baltimore. Founded in 2006 as a platform to give emerging artists a wider audience, we champion the work of early to mid-career artists. Through our gallery exhibitions, auxillary spaces, Thrive and presenting works at international art fairs, Jordan Faye Contemporary exposes a larger community to the engaging work of dozens of artists. Currently the gallery represents fifteen artists, who are now at various stages in their careers. Our mission is to show work that is not only of contemporary interest but will be of lasting historical significance.

Thrive at Jordan Faye Contemporary is an incubator for emerging artists and curators; both in its ability to create a community of artists that is thought provoking, insightful and one that is created to share the wealth and knowledge of our collective experiences with one another. Thrive is dedicated to enriching the lives of artists and the community in which it resides. To achieve our mission we provide consulting, workshops and extended residency experiences. For individual artists we provide short exhibition opportunities designed to help navigate and thrive in today's art world. For curators and arts organizations we provide exhibition space to assist them in reaching a further audience and mentoring them in the curatorial process. This new organization is part of Jordan Faye Contemporary expanding their programming and relocating into a 3300 sq. ft. space in the Bromo Arts & Entertainment District at the Maryland Art Place Building, Top floor, of 218 W Saratoga Street.
